Bug Description

I had to manually edit sound.conf to make the setting stick permanently.

I use a .wav file in my Home folder. Xchat would use it when I set in but on restarting xchat it reverted to it's original setting.

It doesn't save any settings.

The reason being I was quiting with the X window close button.

If you quit with xchat>quit or ctrl q it then saves any changed settings.

Yep as in post 2. Make a change in settings then quit using the X flake window button. Change does not get saved. If you quit with File > Quit it gets saved.

Seems like xchat or OS does not handle existing file properly. Simple `rm sound.conf` and close op issued afterwards made xchat regenerate this file with proper content.
